Scientific Advisory Boards (SABs)

The University of Vienna’s Organisation Plan allows for the setting up of scientific advisory boards (SABs) both on the faculty and centre level, as well as on the level of the overall University.

These advisory boards, made up of external experts, are aimed at strengthening the University of Vienna's international orientation and international focus in its research and teaching activities. Proposals for appointments to the scientific advisory boards for faculties and centres are made by the individual faculties and centres.

Scientific advisory boards serve in a consultative function and are designed to support the faculty or centre particularly in development planning, as well as in the development of target agreements and in their implementation.

The necessary funding for the scientific advisory board (travel expenses, remuneration for the members, etc.) is provided by the Rectorate. Organisational support for the scientific advisory boards is the responsibility of the individual faculty or centre. The budgetary framework is to be set forth in the context of the target agreements.
